      • Sweetie I would be surprised if you were taking it any way but hard. Know that we are here for you & all of your family- just to talk- give you a hug- or cry with you! Our hearts truly break for your loss as well as our own! You know… if it wasn’t for your darling mother I would have never tasted squirrel… (course, she didn’t tell me it was squirrel till I ate it & said it was good, lol) she really was a great cook too!
